Diamor - Moat
A secret room in the moat was said to contain nine kegs of gold protected by a large black dog with a white spot. The only way to escape with the gold was to stab the dog three times with a dagger to the white spot.

Lough Sheelin - Under the water
A man dived to the bottom of the lough after making a wager that he could find something to bring up. He discovered an underwater house, in which he stumbled upon an old woman. She gave him a copper skillet to take back to the surface. As he left the house, the man was chased by a giant eel, but managed to escape.
Lough Sheelin - Waters of the lough
A farmer spotted a beautiful woman leave the lough and forced her to return to his farmhouse. Eventually she agreed to stay with him, on the condition that she never glazed upon the lake again. Twenty years passed and the farmer and the mermaid had several children. While waiting for the farmer to return from the fields on a clear day, the mermaid spotted the lough in the distance and fled towards it, never to be seen again.

Navan - Skyrne Castle, Hill of Tara
A phantom man, tall and covered by a cloak, once haunted this area, accompanied by his hunting hound. The area is also home to a shadowy nun and a woman in white who screams as she is chased by an unidentified shadow.
Navan - Two hawthorn trees on the Hill of Tara
Trees still present
The two trees here belong to the fairies - damaging them, or even just taking a clipping, would result in bad luck befalling the perpetrator.
Nobber - Country lane in the area
A local myth says that two people in a car stopped to offer a man standing by the roadside a lift, believing him to be a hitchhiker. The person on the passenger side then noticed the figure was hovering above the ground. The people drove away at speed.

This ghost was once watched as she slowly dissolved into nothingness. She has also been heard walking in empty parts of the building, though the footsteps could belong to a white woman who also haunts the castle.
An old postcard of Slane Castle
Slane - Slane Castle
The Puca which resided at the castle was considered its protector and would take the form of a large hound or small steed. The entity wore a chain around its neck regardless of form, so was always recognisable.
Slane - Village green
A large stone cross which once stood on the village green was said to have risen from the ground before shattering with such force that pieces were recovered from Teltown, some twelve miles westwards.
Tailltenn (now known as Teltown) - Exact area not known
Between AD 944 and 956
Conghalach Cnoghbha, High King of Ireland, and his men were said to have spotted a sailing ship in the sky here. A crew member of this ship threw a spear at a salmon, also in the sky, which missed and landed close to Conghalach. The crew member leapt from the ship and, swimming in the sky, came down to the ground to retrieve the spear. One of the King's men grabbed the swimmer, who screamed out 'I'm drowning!'. Conghalach told his man to release the crew member, who 'swam' back to the ship which then disappeared into the clouds.
